The rabbits that were stuck behind the cordon at the Mill have been reunited after over two weeks.

Two rabbits at the centre of the spy poisioning in Salisbury are now back with their owner.

The pair were trapped in a flat behind the police cordon at the Mill and weren't able to be fed for four days.

Greg Townsend, General Manager of The Mill lives above the pub and owns the two pet rabbits.

There was a public appeal through Spire FM to make sure they rabbits were fed and watered.

Greg said previously:

"I was sent out of my flat Monday night at 23:50 by the police in Salisbury. I was told I would have access to my flat by Tuesday evening.

"I gave the Rabbits lots of food and water then was escorted out of my flat.

"The police are refusing to let anybody into my flat to give them food and water. They are still alive!! but I think we’re on borrowed time.

"The RSPCA couldn't help and Greene King are doing everything they can. I now worry for there lives. Please help me save these rabbits #rabbitrescue."

Wiltshire Police answered...

The rabbits were removed from the Mill around the 18th March to be monitored by a vet.

They were also taken to Porton Down for a 'check up'.

Owner Greg Townsend thanked the public for their help and is now glad to say they're back home...
